    Sounds good, weatherspoons do sometimes get it right. Here in London though quite easy to find pubs with good Ales. I've only just started drinking them and starting from ESB and brakspear i've started to get a taste for them.

    Anything you'd recommend in case they have it at the beer festival?

    Hobgoblin, why i say that is because you can get it at lidl of all places. Ha well lidl actually do sell a lot of random Ales in bottles!
    Theres an ale called Bishops Finger LOL.

    I think Abbot and Old Speckled Hen are mass produced you would be looking for something more unknown i think. Not been to Sir John Maxwells in a long time i think i need to go back. Oh yeah well i guess in the city centre there would be pubs with real ales.

    There is the Good Beer Guide 2011 and speaking of Real Ales there is also Cask Ales.

    My local just sells like Tennents, Carling, Guiness, McEwans, Mangers Gold Draught, John Smiths, loads of the usual shit nothing great or special.

    WRONG! I'm a stalker... just for research I decided to find out why Freedom has such a hot room/house. Easy:
    Front windows face east, rear windows face west. Sun rises in ease, sets in west = pretty much sun through the windows at all hours.

    Here's a little secret - Heatware. It's my favourite place to find out details about people. Once you find someone's email addy, you can find out so much more...

    When I first signed up to heatware, my new email address was registered with TPU and heatware ONLY. I started getting spam, so the source was either TPU or Heatware. After contacting the administrator of Heatware, it became apparent why.
    When you're logged into heatware you can view any other member's email address. This was obviously where the spam was coming from.
    So, I made up a new email address JUST for heatware and changed my heat options so the new email addy is shown instead ;) I recommend you all do the same, as if you're a person who likes their privacy, heatware leaves you wide open for abuse.

    :laugh: So you attack the telemarketer, but leave the bailif alone? Man this clubhouse is f*cked up!! :roll:

    the baliffs have the respect to irritate people in person most of the time

    Whenever you get called by a telemarketer this is how your conversation should go, for those who want it to stop quickly

    Is it a good idea to add your WCG tasks to your antivirus exclusion list

    Not in telemarketing business just to leave it clear, we don't care if you have double glazing or not. ;) I am also someone who doesn't like getting called and told they got a good deal on X,Y,Z.

    And nope you don't need to add it to exclusion list. Normally an AV will scan the WU and then leave it alone since it doesn't have anything virulent about it. I've run some crunchers with and without AV.. and it doesn't even impact on PPD (using Microsoft Security Essentials)

    Also...

    It's raining!!! WTF! I wanted to get out and do shit!

    nothing new there then. Also I dont think that just relates to numbers. they sell some personal data too for marketing research purposes. e.g. the amount of times youve called a sex line or ordered pizza from the same number/handset.

    they will most likely sell personal data too. Thats how companies are these days. anything and everything can be bought for a price.

    Just because they tell you they will keep your details private, doesnt mean that actually do it! trolololol :roll:

    Look at the DVLA. a few months back they were prosecuted for selling peoples private data. and thats not just the one off incident.

    There's a beer tent and a raft competition where teams are racing home-made rafts and I'll have the kids with me so that'll all take my mind off the rain I suppose.
    But I hate seafood! Cod ONLY for me!!

    i just think something strange is going on as i was called by 3 yesterday, it was a missed call, so i rang them back (it was from an 02 number strangely) first time i got to a switchboard and hung up, second time i got through to this guy, asked him why he rang me and he went into some sort of apology saying they were trying to offer me money back on my phone

    I wouldnt bother calling them back. if you didnt pick up the first time. they will just put your number back in the system so it gets called again at another time.

    yeah, it was an 02 number though so i thought it might of been an ordinary person (these places generally have 08's don't they)

    Shouldn't have rung them back. Now your number is logged as a ringer-backer, which means that it's worth more when selling to other companies. Just like when you get a text through saying a load of marketing boll*cks with "text STOP to unsubscribe" on it, the worst thing you can do is text it...

    I don't know how it all works and how much numbers are worth etc, but I know ringing or texting back gets your number targeted for more sales calls/texts.

    i am aware of that, however if your rung by an 02 number you tend to assume its a landline

    Guess what movie i'm watching
